anne said you can do a lot. $10 for the red cross we've seen with the programs $10 makes a big difference in pakistan and haiti. and i think it's bringing more attention to these topics that we would not normally. >> cokie raises an interesting point the way ads work is more and more you look at people who look just like us and look just as ugly and as bad as we do. and somehow we are supposed to identify with these people. but the fact is that there is a celebrity fever in this country. and maybe there always has been so the whole notion that i am doing the same thing as somebody famous appeals to people. never has appealed to me. but if it gets people --. >> because are you for the underdog. >> true. >> i think it's fantastic because it raises awareness on these issues. very few of us i have been privileged to travel around the world and go to ethiopia and address the issues but few of us get a chance to do that and everyone can participate and it brings awareness and knowledge. >> it is a great way to end the program is to have everyone participate with awareness and knowled
